Merry Christmas - Holly

Such a simple card, yet lots went into it. I embossed white cardstock with a provo craft folder, sorry don't know what it's called (they should name them on the foler itself don't yea think?), but it has vines and little birds on it. Then using Tim Holtz' Bingo texture trades (embossing folder) I embossed a pop can. Then cut out the number 25. I ended up cutting the pop can into little pieces, to just double the size of the number 25, placed all 3 under the 25 and embossed multiples at the same time. Then I just trimmed around the frame of the 25 and glued it on with Aleena's white glue.

The holly was cut using my cricut and an svg file. Then spritzed with homemade glitter mist. The leaves are done with a Martha Stewart punch. 

The little red berries were bought from dollarama. They are little foam balls, that came in a large bag and labeled for use as vase fillers. There must be 1,000 in the bag. Perfect for little berries.

A little Fired Brick inking around both edges of the card and the embossed piece and that's it.
